REPORT: U.S. appeals court to revisit open carrying of guns
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by REUTERS.COM:
(Reuters) – A federal appeals court has decided to reconsider its recent decision that the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects the right to openly carry guns in self-defense.
In an order on Friday, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it will revisit whether Hawaii acted lawfully in denying the plaintiff George Young a permit to openly carry a loaded gun.
The article goes on to state the following:
Circuit Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain wrote for a 2-1 majority last July 24 that “we do not take lightly the problem of gun violence, which the State of Hawaii has understandably sought to fight,” but that the state nevertheless violated Young’s rights.
Just received California 9th Circuit’s order granting rehearing en banc for George Young v. State of Hawaii open carry case. This was clear cut and should have been rejected. Disappointing but not unexpected from the 9th. #2A #BS #opencarry #guns #GunPolicy pic.twitter.com/3u7u2AFE4d
